Last time I checked, the UMC Board's own consultant told it that it was jeopardizing it's shot at HUD financing if it continued to demolish buildings in what's known as the LSU Footprint.

Well, today, the State's contractors demolished yet another building in the LSU Footprint, a multi-story, commercial space that once stood immediately to the right of the shotgun on Palmyra pictured above.  While the building was vacant, it certainly could have been reused as a commercial space within easy walking distance of the existing LSU medical campus.

I'm not quite understanding why the State continues to allow its contractors to take actions that, from everything that's been stated publicly, hurt its chances of getting the funding necessary to actually build the hospital.
